Did the fabric work well?

This pattern is perfect for all kind of fabrics! The linen gives it a more crisp silhouette and the rayon is very flowy and in this blue it reminds me of my home town beach at the Black Sea.

How did the sewing go?

I made a size S, I am a C cup and thinking that this is a pretty loose garment I measured the pattern and didn’t make the full bust adjustment. The fit is perfect. The rayon was a bit challenging to sew and of course I had to do also a bit of print matching. The linen on the other hand, was a breeze to sew. I love the finishing of the neckline with the bias strip, very flat and neat.

What was the best part?

Well, this is really a very easy project. Starting from printing the PDF (I love the grid lines, makes it so easy to tape the pages straight) and finishing the dress in no time. This is for me the perfect summer dress to wear in and outside the house.

    Thank you so much for showing us your dresses. I wondered how this pattern would look in prints. For some reason it does not seem as flowy as I had expected it to be. I think I was expecting the pattern to be more trapeze shaped but it is lovely. I love your rayon dress especially. It is really important to see the pattern executed in lovely fabrics.

    You look beautiful in both dresses! The patterned linen one is my favorite! Thanks for sharing your work. It’s so helpful to see images of the dress in different fabrics before heading to the fabric store.
